Summer Monteys-Fullam EXC: Paul 's ex breaks silence on NDA drama

Paul 's ex-girlfriend Summer Monteys-Fullam has broken her silence on refusing to sign a non-disclosure agreement, as requested by the Bake Off star.

The former barmaid, 24 - who split from the celebrity chef, 53, in August after a two year romance - insisted she's looking forward to being in a relationship 'without any imposed restrictions' as she finally puts their fiery break-up behind her.

Horse enthusiast Summer exclusively told MailOnline on Thursday: 'It isn’t about the age, it is about the person – who you love, trust and have mutual respect with… where you are free and accepted to be yourself without any imposed restrictions.'

Her long-term romance with the BBC star was first met with scrutiny as the media personality had just announced his divorce from his wife of nearly 20 years, Alex, in November 2017. 

Despite the backlash, the pair seemed as loved-up as ever, before news of their split emerged over the summer - which came as a result of Paul - who is in a new relationship with barmaid Melissa Spalding, 36 - asking Summer to sign a gagging order.

The social media sensation shared her thoughts on embarking on a new relationship after revealing she wouldn't mind dating an older man again.

Summer said at the Essential Vie skincare launch last Thursday: 'I'd date an older guy again. I don't think anyone in a relationship should sign an NDA. I'll stand by that.'

After being dumped by the stunner, Paul claimed Summer is money-grabbing, stating: 'There's always two sides to a story - you've only heard one'.

He said back in August: 'Thank you for your messages I've been receiving it means a lot. My silence on any matters is not a sign of weakness or agreement of what's been said, merely I prefer a quiet life away from my day job. 

'Take what's read with a pinch of salt and read between the lines. I know the public can't be duped into believing what's out there from a person making money selling stories and continuously courting the paps.

He added: 'There's always two sides to a story you've only heard
